  • The Indians are closing in on a deal with Cuban teenage right-hander Leando Linares Gonzalez worth an estimated $1 million, according to an industry source.

  • Tampa Bay hit three homers yesterday, including Evan Longoria's 20th, which gave Chris Archer yet another win. Archer lowered his ERA to 2.76.
  • The Marlins ended up playing 13 innings Sunday—and still have not managed a run. "Shut out the entire series, the Marlins established a dubious franchise record as they have now gone 37 consecutive innings without a run. The previous team mark was 30, set a year ago."

    In other words, since the break, every Marlins hitter has been Mark Reynolds at the plate.
  • Lindor continues to hit well at Akron. 2-for-4 so far today. OBP was .545 entering the game, and he was 5-for-5 in stolen bases . I saw him play Tuesday, and he’s also everything they say he is defensively.
